Overview

Revised, updated, and expanded for its Third Edition, Anatomic Exposures in Vascular Surgery, is an indispensable guide for the vascular surgeon planning an operation.  This classic anatomic reference contains over 550 drawings by a renowned surgeon and illustrator depicting the complex anatomy of the vasculature and surrounding structures, and demonstrating the ideal exposure techniques.  The original illustrations will be presented in full color to fully convey three-dimensional concepts of anatomic relationships of the blood vessels and their surrounding structures, which will help to guide surgical decision-making in vascular surgery.   Concise legends and text describe the anatomy in relation to the surgical approach.

The book is organized by body region, and chapters are divided into anatomic overview and surgical approach sections, which allows the book to be used for extensive study or quick review, depending on the needs of the reader.   New sections to this edition include forearm compartment syndrome, forearm fasciotomy, and vascular exposure of the lumbar spine.   New concepts regarding surgical approaches to the blood vessels are updated in each chapter along with up-to-date references.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

 "This expanded and updated new edition adds color illustrations to enhance visual comprehension of anatomical relationships and describes novel exposure techniques."

"The book is fantastic for vascular and general surgery residents and fellows, practicing surgeons, and anyone who needs a review of vascular anatomy."

"This has been a wonderful book, and the third edition is even better. The uniform, detailed illustrations by Dr. Wind have now improved with the use of color, and readers will have a better three-dimensional understanding of the anatomy after reading this book. With the number of open vascular surgeries decreasing, this is an essential learning tool for all vascular surgery trainees and a fundamental resource for practicing surgeons."

Description: This expanded and updated new edition adds color illustrations to enhance visual comprehension of anatomical relationships and describes novel exposure techniques.
Purpose: The purpose is to demonstrate what surgeons would see in the operating room in terms of vascular procedures. With this as a detailed practical guide, vascular exposures can be done with less difficulty.
Audience: The book is fantastic for vascular and general surgery residents and fellows, practicing surgeons, and anyone who needs a review of vascular anatomy.
Features: It begins with a chapter on embryology and ends with a section on anatomic variations of blood vessels. Carotid and vertebral arteries are demonstrated in the first section, while thoracic aorta and other vessels of the chest are shown in the second section. The third section covers blood vessels of the upper extremity. Here, there is a new section on forearm fasciotomy. Abdominal vessels are shown in the fourth section, with another new section on vascular exposure of the lumbar spine. The fifth section is on vessels of the lower extremity. These detailed drawings and practical descriptions also can be accessed on the publisher's website.
Assessment: This has been a wonderful book, and the third edition is even better. The uniform, detailed illustrations by Dr. Wind have now improved with the use of color, and readers will have a better three-dimensional understanding of the anatomy after reading this book.
